Does the 18-135mm kit lens have image stabilization? Or does the t3i body itself have some sort of image stabilization feature?

It's not the camera that does the image stabilization- the lens is the item that does it. The Canon T3i Camera has the capability to communicate to an " IS" (Image Stabilization) Lens but it won't do it unless the lens specifically has the "IS" designation in the model number of the lens. Example: the EF-S 18-135mm f/3… see more It's not the camera that does the image stabilization- the lens is the item that does it. The Canon T3i Camera has the capability to communicate to an " IS" (Image Stabilization) Lens but it won't do it unless the lens specifically has the "IS" designation in the model number of the lens. Example: the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, notice that in this case the end of the Lens number has the "IS" designation, thus it is an "Image Stabilization" type lens and is the type you should be using with all Canon Rebel Cameras. It is possible to use non-image stabilization lenses with the Canon Rebel T3i but I don't know why anyone would because its made for Image Stabilization lenses for this very reason. The only time you don't want the Camera in the IS function is when you are using a tripod. Put the IS lens in the "manual" mode when using a tripod or else the little Gyroscopes that makes up the IS function inside the lens actually causes fits with the picture clarity when using a solid non moving surface/mount (i.e. a tripod). The instructions with your camera will explain this. see less It's not the camera that does the image stabilization- the lens is the item that does it.

I don't have the 18-135 but I'm almost positive they have image stabilization because I think all of the Ef-s lenses have image stabilization. Did that help?

Sorry, I bought the camera as a gift for someone else - I don't know.
